Reviewed by Jocelyn Pearce for TeensReadToo.com

There's certainly something for everyone in this anthology edited by the brilliant David Levithan and with contributions from great writers like Samantha Schultz, Markus Zusak and Eddie de Oliveira.

It seems to me, however, that short stories can be more subjective than other forms of literature, especially when some of them are as unconventional as some of these are.

All of these stories are very different; there's not really anything I can write here to tie it all together. They're all well worth reading, although every story will not appeal to every reader.

My personal favorites included "Picking," "Smoking Lessons," and "The Waitress." However, upon picking this book up, you've got to be prepared to sit through a few you inevitably won't love; this collection of very different stories will affect everyone differently. None are badly written, however, and the certainty of finding at least one you'll absolutely love makes THIS IS PUSH, overall, a satisfying read. ( )
